THE CARROT. ,.

Soxr. one ; should send CLEarNTINA into the nursery to dance 'to baby; for PoPa Pius IX,'has issued an encyclical mandate from the Vatican proclaiming a universal jubileot and, what is better still, the Pastorals of Virgil are likely to be superseded by the 'Pastorals' of his Grace, the Roman Catholic Arch. bishop of Melbourne. In other words, there is quite a storm In the teapot,' because our Catholic fellow.colonists are antagonistic to the existing system of public education. The now his torical pamphlet of the Hooorable WILLIAM EWART GLADSTONE has evi dently not appeared too soon, for sober. minded people who possess souls above buttons, are earnestly analysing the dictum of the illustrious author, and are considering whether implicit obedl Vuce to the Yaticanu decrees be com. p4tlble with;:.loyal allegiance' toi,the 'Crown of England."

VOLUNTEERS V. REGULARS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 22 May 1875

TO THIE EDITOR'OF THE MEiRURY. Sir-In a letter which appeared in one of your contemporaries on the above sub ject, the writer observes that the present unsatisfactory state of the volunteerforce is owing to the want of knowledge in the present Colonel-Commandant. He states his opinion that in certain movements the men have never had any proper instruction since Colonel Pitt left, Now my suggestion is this-Let our Minister of War communi cate at once with the. Agent-General,. and endeavour to secure the services of Colonel Pitt once more. Apart from this officer's well-known reputation as a clever drill, and also instructor of musketry-which position he held in the 40th previous to raising the present force-since he left our shores he has gained considerable knowledge in military tactics. In the New Zealand war he com?ianded the Victorian volunteers. All this knowledge, then, would be brought to boer on the force, should he have the reconstruction of it. It seems to be admitted that ...

NOTES ON SOCIAL MATTERS. "Thou speaks aright: I am the merry wandere of the night." [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 22 May 1875

NOTES ON 8"$A601 MATTEE& ' Sam the mor wandero: of th nig It is very interesting to watch from time to time the different channels through which the general public is accustomed to -eek recreation, and the variety of means risorted to for gratifying its taste in this direction. In connection with this subject, there are two distinct classes, viz., that portion of the public seeking recreation, apd that which makes its living by its provision, The latter class is large, but the former is larger. It appears to me from this, in comparing the two, that those who are continually engaged in catering for the publio benefit are most successful when they most impose. These remarks are applicable more to amusements of the lowest stamp provided. And it behoves those who bid for the entertainment of the publio to guard against falling into an error of this kind. There are numerous matters of detail to be disposed of satis. factorily before success can be anticipated, and if these are ne...

A GOSSIP ON ADVERTISING. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 22 May 1875

A GOSSIP ON ADVERTISING. TN few things is the .difference seen to be so great between the former and the latter days asin the art of advertising. Of course in its narrower significance advertising is but. of yesterday, but. taken in its wider sense it is as old as the hills and coextensive with the whole human race. Cheops, when he built the Pyramids, was in reality advertising himself as the A 1 and noblest thing in monarchs. And the great manufacturers and sugh like of the present day only follow his example when they .parade themselves and their wares before the public eye to the exclusion of everything else. What were.the old pursuivants and heralds but so many advertising sheets bound in calf and pmail? What were the: old ballad singers but two-legged editions of our Advertisers and Ohro nioles ? And down to more recent times the, village barber and smithy were only forerunners of the great publishers of intelligence that were to come after them.. But. it was a poor and, feeble...
